TESTIMONIALS
"If you are looking for an exceptional Realtor, Steve Downs is the man for you! We were lucky to meet Steve in the spring of 2019. He has been involved in a lot of transactions within Steamboat Springs and that experience really shows through. We found him to be very knowledgeable about the Steamboat Springs market and what makes this area a wonderful place to own property.

Steve’s communication was thorough and sharp. He expertly navigated the transaction process with us, the broker on the other side of the transaction, the mortgage company, title company, and insurance company. He was always responsive via phone, email, and text. This put us at ease because we knew we could reach out however we were able, and he would respond very quickly.

Steve went way above and beyond expectations. He was able to schedule showings in very short order when we made a last-minute trip from Wisconsin to Colorado. He drove us from location to location, offering information about the town, and thoughts to consider about the different types of properties we were looking at. Steve provided a very thorough inventory listing of all of the property included in our transaction, which made the long-distance purchase easy to navigate. He connected us with another client to remove a set of twin beds we did not need and even moved a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer when we left town and forgot to change it. Now that is really going above and beyond!

In conclusion, Steve Downs will work very hard for you, go the extra mile, is very good at his craft and is a great human being to work with and get to know. We would highly recommend him to anyone that is doing a real estate transaction in the Steamboat Springs area!"

"I have known Steve Downs over thirty years since I bought my Steamboat condo. Two years ago, when I was considering selling my condo, I sought out Steve’s advice. Steve helped me assess the market and the future. I decided to hold the condo until September 2018. Within two weeks e had several offers, one of which I accepted. Our delay in putting the condo on the market resulted in a much greater purchase price than I could have received had I placed it on the market earlier. With offer in hand, Steve took over, keeping me updated with the progress of the sale and double checking each step along the way till Closing. This was effortless for me. Working with Steve reinforced my decisions. I highly recommend Steve Downs to be your real estate Broker/Agent." - VL; NY

"Lucy certainly knew the right person for me to contact in Steamboat! This information, as well as all the selected current listings, is a great help in my decision process. The listings verified that Steamboat is affordable. It is premature to go any further re specific properties. I’ll g through the links you provided and learn more about your wonderful town. I can’t make any decisions on location until I find someone as knowledgeable as you in Park City and Lake Tahoe. My week here has been both wonderful and informative. Looks like more exploratory trips will be necessary to experience Steamboat in different seasons."- JR;FL

I am happy to say now, almost five years later, I continue to believe that I have never worked with an individual in a professional capacity that is so thorough, professional and fun to work with as you. You are a tribute to your profession and the agency. I wouldn’t think of working with anyone else in Steamboat other than Steve Downs. Best to your and your Family, Steve. "- JB; WI
